All these changes ‘ pre covid ‘ sounding like skyboxes that aren’t aeropost . I don’t think people realise how much those local skyboxes were giving them a Bligh all this time . The vat / taxes have always been generally high

Due to online schooling I wanted a loft bed for my kid to have a proper cubicle and bed without taking up any more bedroom space. Nobody locally was selling one so I decided to buy it. But if you want a normal bed there are plenty sources locally.

just when things were going good....

"...Here's a quick update on the shipments that arrived on the 27th, 30th and 31st August, 2021. We have been unsuccessful in obtaining permission to clear your packages up to this morning.
This is as a result of someone testing positive for Covid at the courier bound. Consequently, the courier bond is now closed until further notice.

We will continue to provide updates as soon as they become available and we thank you for your patience."

So unfortunately, because Swissport is the ONLY company doing ground handling of all cargo, it means that the entire courier industry has now ground to a halt.

If everyone from bond has to quarantine for 14 days is more pain.
Guess wha going and happen with Customs when bond reopen.

Doing over my son's room currently and the wife wanted the same concept Habit described. Wanted to have it done before school opened but my cousin who lives next to us passed away last week throwing off our timelines somewhat.

She ended up selecting a design where the bed has steps on the side which incorporates drawers as well as drawers below. He can also sit on the steps and chill.

Some woodworking guy in Gasparillo but OFC the coin is a bit high. All cedar design except the drawers.

RPM indicated today that they cleared all my packages....they'll be delivering tomorrow.
They also indicated that a new rotation of workers are at the bond so work is back on!
